Early Mountain Vineyard 2018 Rose
Fully chilled out of the refrigerator, the nose is a bit muted with light strawberry and white grapefruit notes. But as it warms just a bit, there's more here – peach and pretty floral notes and a streak of savory dried herbs.
Bone dry and brisk, the palate is lithe and feathery in the mouth. Peach, strawberry and grapefruit fruit flavors are juicy and lively. This is a lip-smacker.
